On motion, it was agreed to have reports on State, 
Home and Foreign Missions read and discussed under one 
head. 

The following reports were read: 

REPORT ON STATE MISSIONS. 

The position of the State Board of Missions in our system of 
mission work is by few of the Baptists of Alabama correctly esti- 
mated. The object of this report will be to place before this body a 
plain statement of the objects for which this Board was created and 
to strive thereby to awaken a deeper interest in its work. 

1. To the State Board is committed all the interests of mis- 
sions in Alabama, including the interest of the Home Mission Board, 
at Atlanta, and the Foreign Mission Board, at Richmond. The em- 
ployees of the State Board are careful to look after these several 
phases of missions, realizing that distinctions between them are 
only in name, each having in view the same grand purpose, viz : The 
extension of the Master's kingdom among men in obedience to His 
command. Your- committee deem it important that the fact that the 
State Board has in hand all these interests of missions, be clearly set 
forth, for a contribution to the support of the State Board is indi- 



— 6 — 

rectly a contribution to the Home and Foreign Boards. Attention is 
called to the evident fact that the prosperity of every phase of the 
mission work depends upon the prosperity of the State Board. Tf 
its policies are vigorously sustained, good results will be seen in 
every department of our work. Each consecrated man put on the 
field in Alabama, whether as evangelist, missionary pastor or col- 
porter, adds one to the number who have at heart every interest of 
the Master's kingdom. 

2. The State Board is engaged in the following special lines of 
work : — 

First — Evangelical. This means the employment of conse- 
crated men to travel and preach among the churches, striving to 
awaken a deeper interest in the cause of missions at home and abroad, 
as well as visiting destitute regions and preaching to the lost the 
peerless Gospel of the blessed God. Of these men there are at 
present under the employment of the Board Brethren A. J. Preston, 
South-east Alabama; W. A. Parker, Sr., in South-west; J. W. Sand- 
lin, in the North-east, and Jos. Shackelford, in the Northern part of 
the State. The importance of this work can be better appreciated 
when we remember that out of the 120 thousand white Baptists in the 
State not more than twelve thousand are making contributions to 
missions. To add to the number of regular contributions to the 
cause is greatly to be desired and must be done if we hope to enlarge 
the work and to do anything like what ought to be done in Alabama 
for the advancement of the Master's kingdom. 

Second — Missionary Pastoral Work. This work consists in 
helping to support pastors at important points that give promise of 
soon growing into self-sustaining churches. Beyond question, the 
brightest page in the history of the State Board is that page that 
gives record of the work that has been done in this department of 
labor. There are more than a score of churches that are now strong 
and selfsupporting that in their early history were sustained by the 
State Board. Indeed many of them were planted by the Board. 
But while it is true that a grand work has been done, " there 
remaineth yet much land to be possessed." Many destitute fields are 
sounding the Macedonian cry, "Come over and help us," but lack of 
means prevents the Board from responding favorably. 

It is proper to say in this connection that the Secretary of the 
Board gives much of his time to missionary and evangelistic work. 

From these very brief statements we can gather some concep- 
tion of the important work that is being done by our State Board of 
Missions. That this work commends itself to our hearty sympathy 
and support is a most evident proposition. Just at this time your 
committee is in position to know that the Board is sadly in need of 
funds. The Secretary is struggling to pay the indebtedness of the 
Board to its employees. Some of these have not been paid in the 
last year. Your committee speaks with authority when it assures 
this Association that the State Board of Missions was never in so 
pressing need of help as how; and we would urge the churches that 
in the very near future they make a special contribution to this work.

C. J. Bently, Chairman. 

REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS. 

This branch of our mission field occupies the destitute places in 
our own country among our own people, also among the Indians and 
negroes. Outside of the Home field proper, Cuba has been aided 
for several years by this board, as if in anticipation of its addition to 
our own country. Dr. I. T. Tichener is its very efficient Secretary, 
with headquarters at Atlanta, Ga. 

The statements above made show at a glance the importance of 
the work under the supervision of this branch of our mission work. 
Our own Southland, so inviting to immigration, should be thoroughly 
occupied by Southern Baptist so that this country shall continue in 
the future, as in the past, the stronghold of Baptist principles. Cuba, 
so recently freed from the galling yoke of Spanish rule, needs now, 
as never before, freedom from Roman Catholocism. Such men as 
Diaz need the co-operation of the Baptists of this country. From the 
report of the Home Board to the last meeting of the Southern Baptist 
Convention we learn the following facts which are indeed very 
encouraging : 

The amount raised and expended on the field for Home Mis- 
sions this year is $54,251.04 against $45,671.82 last year. There have 
been collected and expended in building houses of worship on the 
field this year $56,385.46 against $51,540 last year, making a total of 
money raised on the field $110,636.50 against total raised on the field 
last year of $97,211.82, an increase of $13,424.68. Total cash received 
by the Board from all sources has been $86,887.27 against $83,184.31, 
an increase of $3,702.96. 

The number of missionaries employed this year was 467 against 
372 last year. Baptisms this year 4,739 against 4,709 last year. Total 
additions to churches this year 9,509 against 9,455 last year. 

It is gratifying to the Board under the adverse conditions of the 
year, to present to the Convention one of the best reports it has ever 
been privileged to make. M. W. Whatley, Chairman. 



REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS. 

Your committee beg leave to submit the following: 
The most stupendous undertaking that has ever been made is 
the work of human redemption. In order to the full consumation of 
this work, God has not spared his own dear son. And Jesus Christ, 
the Lord of Glory, came to this world to seek and to save that which 
was lost, and having found men and women wandering in the dark- 
ness of sin, and having imparted to them the light of life, has en- 



— 8— . 

joined them to publish the news of salvation everywhere. In God's 
providence and in the divine order of things,, the churches of the 
Carey Association are allowed to fill a place among the Lord's orga- 
nized hosts. Dear Brethren, are we ready to honor the place we fill? 
By mean, of the Foreign Mission Board we have immediate and 
vital connection with our brethren in foreign lands, sp that we may 
take the means in our hands and place them in theirs and say to 
them, "Use this for the glory of God." And through the columns 
of the Foreign Mission Journal we may enjoy communication with 
them and learn about their work. We have in foreign mission fields 
today seventy-six missionaries, with one hundred and seventeen 
native assistants ; churches, one hundred and two; number of baptisms 
in 1897, seven hundred and one, and with a total membership of four 
thousand, seven hundred and sixty. And since, among these self- 
sacrificing workers and servants of Christ, Miss Willie Talley stands 
as a representative of the Alabama Baptist family in China today, and 
Mrs. H. P. McCormick in Mexico, and Brother J. W. McCullum and 
wife in Japan. Thus are we brought face to»face with the consider- 
ation of individual responsibility in the work of foreign missions. 
Everywhere are open doors. The tremendous opposition in the 
past is gone, and the greatest hinderance now seems to be listless in- 
difference at home. What a magnificent opportunity God is giving 
us. Dear Brethren, the time shall come when all the earth shall 
know the truth and the glorious reign of the Messiah shall extend 
from shore to shore and the world shall be full of the knowledge of 
the glory of the Lord. Brother, sister, what is to be your part in 
this glorious consummation. Respectfully submitted, 

J. R. Conger, Chairman. 

After discussion by Brethren C. J. Bently, W. H. 
Preston, J. J. McCord, J. D. Dunn, T. B. Fargason, G. A. 
Hornady, C. T. Culpepper, J. W. Stephens and H. Ingram. 

On motion, the body adjourned for one hour and a half 
for dinner. 

Afternoon Session — 1:30 p. m. 

The discussion of the above reports continued by 
Brethren J. R. Conger, J. R. Stodghill, F. P. Nichols, W. 
H. Preston, R. H. McCain, J. J. McCord and W. T. Davis. 
The reports were then adopted. 

^ The following report on Institute Work was read : 

REPORT ON INSTITUTE WORK. 

We, your committee, beg leave to submit the following report : 
The history of Institute Work had its origin in the great need 
of our hard worked ministry for more efficient training in their 
efforts to develop the latent energies of the hosts of untrained Bap- 
tists of our State. The present system of Institute work in Alabama 
had its origin in the great heart and mind of the lamented D. I. Pur- 
ser who, for three years, supervised a helpful Institute of one month 



5" 



— 9 — 

each session at Howard College after the regular session of college 
work. One of the lecturers in these summer Institutes was Rev. G. 
S. Anderson, who, in his lectures set forth a system of helpful work 
which the Institute asked Rev. Anderson to publish. 

This the brother did, and began at the same time a plan of 
correspondence teaching of analectical Bible study, and on the urgent 
suggestion of many brethren the holding of Institutes in various 
points of our State whose free entertainment could be had, and where 
a sufficient number of preachers could come together, and study 
together the Bible, and talk together of our blessed Master's king- 
dom. 

Two years ago the State Convention of Alabama espoused this 
cause by giving it a place in its affections and support, and Brother 
Anderson was appointed its special exponent and teacher. Last 
year at East Lake the committee placed this work under a special 
board, or committee, headquarters in Opelika, with W. E. Hudmon 
President and G. S. Anderson, Auburn, Secretary and Treasurer. 
This year this work has been pressed by the Board of Institute 
Management. Brother Anderson is teaching preachers through the 
mails, is publishing The Sermonixer, the organ of Institute work, 
and has already held several helpful meetings, two of which were 
held in our Association, at Daviston and Mount Pleasant. The 
brethren who attended can speak of the work of these meetings. 

This, your committee desires to say, is a work second to none 
ever attempted by the Baptists in Alabama. It is reaching our tired, 
hard-worked ministry who are endeavoring to know their duty more 
fully in doing our Master's bidding. We all are benefited bv this 
work and in turn its efforts will be felt by our people everywhere. 
At the last Southern Baptist Convention the Home Board was asked 
to appropriate the sum of $10,000 to advance the Institute work in the 
bounds of our Southern Baptist Convention. This shows an in- 
creased interest in this work among our people of the Southland. 
The Institute work in Alabama embraces not onlv such general work 
of lectures and helpful discussions as is generally the case in thrs 
work everywhere, but the work in our State embraces in addition, 
the system of Institute work as taught by G. S. Anderson, a gift of 
God to Alabama through a consecrated servant and brother who is 
giving his life to develop our ministry and through them the hosts of 
Baptist people in Alabama. 

Brethren, this work asks for our attention, our love, our sup- 
port, our prayers. Respectfully submitted, 

C. 1. Bkntley, 
J. R. Stodghill, 

Committee. 

Discussed by Rev. G. A. Hornady, J. R. Stodghill,

Report of Executive Committee was read and adopted 
as follows : 



REPORT OF EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. 

We, your Executive Committee, beg leave to make the follow- 
ing report: 



IO — 

Owing to lack of means we failed to employ an Evangelist in 
our Association ; therefore we have accomplished nothing.

The following report on Sabbath schools was read : 

REPORT ON SUNDAY SCHOOLS. 

Dear Brethren and Sisters : — We are glad to say that there 
seems to be a greater interest taken by a goodly number of our 
churches in the Sunday school cause this year. Dear Brethren and 
Sisters of the Carey Baptist Association, may God stir your inmost 
souls up to the utmost diligence in teaching the children the Word 
of our blessed Jesus. Remember that their tender minds are like a 
piece of white paper and are susceptible of any impression that may 
he brought to bear upon them, whether it be good or bad. Remem- 
ber the danger of evil impressions that may be, or may have been 
made, on their youthful minds, and oh, remember the importance of 
tilHne them with the knowledge of that Book of Books, the Bible. 
Let them know that the Bible is the will of God concerning them 
;»nd us. teaching them that Jesus is the Savior of all men, especially 
those that believe on Him, teaching them that they must repent of 
their sins and be born of the water and of the Spirit before they can 
be saved. Brethren, read the 6th chapter of Deuteronomy and let its 
teachings, with all other scripturaladmonitions, be your guide to aid 
you in directing their little roving feet in the way of life everlasting. 
I trust that you will do more on this line in the next Associational 
vear. Fraternally submitted, 

J. T. Mountain, Chairman. 

After discussion by C. J. Bentley, C. T. Culpepper 
and J. R. Stodghill the report was adopted. 

On motion, the Association adjourned until 8:30 A. M. 
Thursday. 



Thursday, October 13, 1898, 8:30 A. M. 

The Association was called to order by the Moderator, 
and devotional exercises were conducted by Rev. J. A.

The Report on Periodicals was read as follows : 

REPORT ON PERIODICALS. 

Dear Brethren : — We, your committee, submit the following 
report : 

We recommend first, the reading and study of the Bible ; also 
the reading of The Alabama Baptist, The Sermonizer, The Foreign 
Missionary Journal and our own Sunday school literature. 

Respectfully submitted, 

B. F. Liker, Chairman.

Discussed by C. J. Bentley, J. D. Dunn, W. H. Pres- 
ton, W. T. Davis, J. R. Conger, J. R. Stodghill and J. J. 
McCord. Adopted. 

Report on Temperance was read as follows: 

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE. 

We, your Committee on Temperance, submit the following 
report: 

Intemperance is a grevious sin and to be practiced by members 
of the church is very hurtful to God's cause in the world. Therefore 
we ought to be temperate in all our habits, and especially in the use 
of strong drink, and to be temperate in strong drink is not to use it 
at all as a beverage. God's Word is very plain in teaching us not to 
be overtaken by it, and we believe it would be much plainer in its 
teaching on the subject if malt liquors had been in use when the 
Bible was written. By the use and traffic of strong drink the church 
and God's cause in the world is being hurt and hindered. It is 
causing more deaths, making more widows and orphans, causing 
more trouble and suffering than any other evil in the world. 

Strong drink has been a curse to the human family in all ages 
of the world. It brought a curse on the family of good old Noah. 
Its evil effects have been growing much faster since the invention of 
malt liquors. It is evilly affecting our law-making power, both State 
and Federal. It is blasting the minds and ruining the characters of 
our young men, and even in our beloved Clay county it has been 
used to affect elections ; therefore we find it to be the greatest agent 
the de~vil has on earth to do his accursed work. Therefore, brethren 
and sisters and Christian friends, we ask you in the name of our Lord 
Jesus Christ to join us in praying and working to suppress the traffic 
in and the social drinking of the accursed stuff. We also ask all 
Christians to abstain from its use except it be by the advice of a 
sober physician. 

We now, in conclusion, thank God that the great God-sent 
work of prohibition is growing in our beloved blood-bought gospel 
land. " ' 

Brethren and sisters, in the name of the Lord Jesus, we can 
stop it, and we must stop it. Can we as churches tolerate dram- 
drinking among members of the church and be consistent with the 
Word of God? Respectfully submitted, 

J. J. McCord, Chairman. 

APPENDIX. 

Resolved, ist, That it is the sense of this body that no mem- 
ber of a Baptist church should be guilty of visiting barrooms, or of 
social dram-drinking. 

2D, That we advise the churches not to retain such in their 
membership. J. R. Stodghill.

Report on Orphans' Home was read : 

REPORT ON ORPHANS' HOME. 

We, your Committee on Orphans' Home, beg to report that our 
Home at Evergreen for the fatherless and motherless children of our 
State has been near the hearts of our people since its establishment, 
and the necessity for larger apartments have grown with the months. 
Some of these improvements have been made and paid for with the 
exception of about $400, which is needed at once that the Home may 
be dedicated at the time appointed, which is October 20. 

We now have 21 boys and 33 girlB in the Home and it takes 
about $325 per month to feed and clothe the children. The total 
expenses are about $400 per month, which is nearly $5,000 per annum. 
This is required from day to day and month to month and therefore 
we should send something each month to feed these children. We 
beg that each messenger on his return home will make of himself a 
committeeman to solicit for the Orphanage and send up a contribu- 
tion at once for this purpose. Respectfully submitted, ' 

J. R. Stodghill, Chairman. 

Discussed by J. R. Stodghill and adopted.

CORRESPONDING LETTER. s 

Dear Brethren :— The forty-fourth annual session of the 
Carey Baptist Association has just closed. The Session was a pleas- 
ant, instructive and profitable one. 

Our people are awakening to the great responsibilities under 
which they are resting, and have advanced during- the last Associa- 
tional year in numbers and contributions, and we trust, in grace. 

Brethren, we should be up and doing; there is a great influx of 
strangers and foreigners into our State, who advocate strange doc- 
trines, and who, unless we assimilate them, will conform the next 
generation to their views in a great degree. To guard against this, 
we should foster all our institutions to the extent of our ability. 

We solicit your future correspondence, and have appointed 
correspondents to represent us in your Associations. 

Clerk.
